Before you get all bent out I love JP. But the stealing and statutory rape jokes are pretty damn funny.

Oh Mama

Page entranced me at 13-first time I saw him in white suit w/Robert I thought both were gals! I "tried" playing Zep from 1980-1984-STUNK-I'm not a good cover guy-now-I listen to the recording techniques and how simple many lines are. I like his "slop" very R+R-he is more interested in theatrics than precision live. I saw him WASTED with the Firm-CRAP-but he hit PAGE notes and time stood still. Page +Pete I copy their stage moves-actually makes parts sound more dynamic-pose like these guys-get results.

I wonder how much of the work that John Paul Jones did, got credited to Jimmy ?

People talk about the awesomeness of Bonham
The genus of Jimmy
And then there was the Rock God - Robert Plant


John Paul Jones gets so under rated and under-appreciated in Zeppelin.

When I was a teenager and totally into the 80s shred thing I thought JP was a lazy player. When Coverdale/Page came out and I ended up loving it I looked backwards and began to appreciate all the LZ stuff.
